    I am new to EE's and I purchased 6 from tractor supply this spring. I have one that is definitely a boy that is crowing and shows all signs of being male. On the other hand, there is one that acts like a girl but looks like it could go either way. They are approx. 14 weeks old. It is the tail that confuses me.

    I vote cockerel. . . the hackle feathers are long and pointy, the saddle feathers are long, and the tail feathers are long, curved, and very shiny.

    He looks like a pretty little boy. Wouldn't mind having him in my flock for some color variation.

    Your white one is a boy, and he's going to be seriously gorgeous! The red and white one is a pretty little girl.

    Enjoy your pair!
